Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

Please take some time today to review all the information on the newsletter site. Today is Monday, January 23rd, 2023.

This week is a busy week at THHS. It is a winter spirit week (themed to Star Wars for the Winter Formal on Thursday). We have a rally during 2nd period on Tuesday, and the dance is Thursday night at AV Irvine in Lake Forest.

Our school showcase is this week as well. On Wednesday night, from 6-8 pm in our gym we will be set up with all of our programs and departments to share the incredible offerings at THHS. This is an opportunity for us to highlight our amazing school, students, and staff. The school choice window also closes on Thursday of this week (more information is at the bottom of this page).

There are also quite a few winter sports contests this week, both at home and away. Be sure to check our athletics twitter feed or with the different programs if you are able to come out and support our wrestlers, soccer, basketball, or water polo athletes. Our competitive cheer team also took first place this past weekend at a nationals-qualifying event. We are so proud of these incredible young ladies! 

Wednesday and Thursday are both minimum days this week, and Friday the 27th is a staff in-service day. Students do not have school the 27th.

Ms. Alicia Foulk

Maya McKenna


Please join us in congratulating the PE Students of the Month! Each week we will highlight a different department! 

Lucas Short is an energetic student and athlete. What is most impressive is that he encourages and builds people up around him. He is the consumat giver of compliments and uses his words to make folks feel better having just been around him. Lucas works hard in school, he works hard in the weight room, he works hard on the field and while he does he is constantly encouraging those around him.

Rachel Tapia Valenica is a great student and a great worker in weight lifting class. Rachel works to exceed expectations and is a great workout partner. Communication, set-up, clean-up, Rachel is on point and working with her workout partners to make it happen. Rachel is a joy and in her own quiet way is a leader via leading by example in class.

Connor Stephan works hard in the weight room and is a great workout partner for his cadre. Connor is attentive to detail and ensures that his workout crew are set-up, safe, and doing appropriate weights for everyone in the group. His leadership is steady and he is productive. Connor is a great member of the class and sets the tone. Yesterday, we did an activity that was "to failure." Connor did a great job doing the activity but in addition to that, Connor was a great teammate while encouraging and spotting his workout group.

Jackie is always on task and not afraid to ask questions. She wants to learn and is always willing to help other students. She works hard to understand and always seeks out help when she does not understand. She is a great example of a student who puts in her best effort.
